Collection 2000 Hot Looks Nail Polish to get some Wintery new additions


Collection 2000 are a long term fave brand of mine- cheap products that deliver and you never need to fee guilty about buying them. They have nails hades in soooo many colours and their Hot Looks Nail Polish range is a personal favourite of mine. Here we have four sultry winterish shades with a decadent forties vibe, and YES I know it’ summer- that’s why we look forward to this, not rave about it now. With names like Jitterbug, Starlet and Shimmy Shake (I’ll leave you to work out which is which) I think they’ll be dazzling for winter and the gold is top of my nail lust list.

In Superdrug from the 31st August, £1.79 each. Continue reading

Red or Dead Release Me : First fragrance in the Red or Dead Family!

Red or Dead is a brand ‘ve had an on-off love affair with for years. They do a lot I really like- they have great colours, a stunning array of tights, glasses frames that are slick and stylish and some very cool shoes. The fashion hasn’t always excited me that much though- but the fact they’re going into scent is exciting.

Call Red or Dead Release Me, you can expect a floral scent with a yummy coconut base. Notes include rose and plum on the top with a muskier base of  tuberose, coconut and cedarwood. The bottle is super cute- a little silver birdcage, and I love that it comes in a tin box- perfect for storing jewellery.

The image used in their shoot is stunning as well- and makes me think seriously about going the redhead route. They showed some stills from the shoot on their Facebook page and its nice to see behind the brand.

It will be £25 for 50ml from the 1st September 2011.

Fantasy hairwear from PuppycatMeow

 

I love dressing up. I have special place in my heart for those who take their love of makeup into the real of fantasy, and cosplay queens, manga girls and harajuku honeys make me all warm and gooey inside unicorns and bunnies oh my! I recently found a great Etsy store where the seller specializes in a variety of hair extensions, hair pieces and cool fantasy wigs which give the wearer an amazing decadent Sailor Moon eesque vibe.

Created by PuppyCatMeow there are so many options to choose from, whether you’re going for a steampunk look or an escaped from LOTR movie style. She can take individual orders and hair can be colour matched to your own if you’re looking at her cool buns and braids.

Here are a few of my favourite pieces. Part of the reason I like them so much is the HUGE attention to detail- not only are the pieces great but the styling and makeup is spot on and you do feel transformed somewhere else when you look at the images.

The Rosette barette is really cute, kinda Leia and kinda GaGa headphone hair at the same time, and definitely wearable.

 

This is an easy to wear piece- the catchy named 3-small-rosettes-made-of-hair-wig-slides. Cute, huh?

MAC Turquatic fragrance a summer scorcher

 

Somehow the fact that MAC occasionally does limited edition scents has escaped me, but I’m excited about the upcoming  Turquatic fragrance.

The word combo makes me think of turquoise, aqua and excitement, and whilst I have NO idea what turquouse smells like, aqua should be light and breezy, and the MAC brand is bound to make it full of sparks.

The scent is crisp and fresh- they’ve blended mineral water through lotus leaves and added some anemone, orris and blue cedar for sweet light notes- perhaps the faintest hint of musk? Sounds like a nice light scent for summer and I like the bottle- looks like a grown up version of Cool Water- and another excuse to hit MAC up.

Date scheduled for release is August 11th in the USA.

Topshop goes animal crazy for A/W 2011

Normally the term ‘animal crazy’ refers to all types of prints, from fierce looking leopard, to zebra, dalmatian and even snakeskin. This season it’s all about the fluffy animals though as Topshop is dong a rather hardcore line of cuddly looking animal tops, from snuggly sweaters to tight fitting jersye shapes with prints of various animals all over them. I think the rabbit version is my favourite; what do you think? It’s definitely a step up from the traditional Christmas jumper…

Fake Nail Jewellery: Yay or Nay?

>
The girl in the picture looks rather pretty. Simple white vest, light sweeping of bronzer, large silvery looking necklace.. made up of fake nails. Yes, FAKE NAILS. Created by Cheap Monday the fake nail collection includes a selection of necklaces, bracelets and earrings all with fake acrylic nails as the main base. It’s kinda cool, and they’re all clean and unused. I’m just unsure. Don’t we have enough ways of making jewellery without using fake nails? What do you think?

You can buy these pieces at Alex and Chloe, with a necklace $58. Continue reading
